IGI staff presenting at the “Chris Cornford Conference”, London 24 – 25th April 2019

Akinniyi Akinwumiju, Dan Cornford, David Gardiner & Andrew Green will be presenting at the upcoming Geological Society of London (GSL) conference on the 24 – 25th April 2019 in honour of IGI’s founder, Chris Cornford:

Celebrating the life of Chris Cornford (1948-2017): Petroleum Systems Analysis ‘Science or Art?’

Geol Soc Conference April 2019

The conference will be inspired by Chris’ ethos of innovation, encouragement of youth and challenging received wisdom.

The integrated approach he espoused will form the basis of the technical programme for the conference covering two themes:

  • Recent developments in the use of data including integration of models and (big) data; use of visualisation and data exploration or mining techniques.
  • Topical issues & controversies ranging from mass balance approaches, petroleum migration to specific modelling studies and practical applications.

Registration is now open on the GSL website and is sure to be well attended: https://www.geolsoc.org.uk/PG-Celebrating-the-life-of-Chris-Cornford
